“Since we cannot agree on facts, then I have no idea how this is going to be resolved. But I think I know where to start.”
We’re on Uncreative Radio with long-time friend of the studio, Calvin O’Neal
Calvin is an animation editor currently with Disney. Some of his previous works include The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore, an Academy Award Winning short, and The Scarecrow which earned a two-time Daytime Emmy Award.
On this episode of Uncreative Radio, Josh and Calvin discuss the juxtaposition between the right and left that encapsulated all of 2020 starting with Covid, to the Black Lives Matter protests, and ending with the insurrection on January 6th.
At the beginning of the pandemic, Josh and Calvin agree that there was a sense of peacefulness in the world, though just for a moment, until the lack of infrastructure and planning by the government became apparent.
Following massive shutdowns, layoffs, and uncertainty for the future Josh also became fearful of his studio not making it through.
As tensions rise in America the topic of opposing views comes to light.
Having both lived in a liberal bubble, Josh and Calvin come to the conclusion that their coastal viewpoints do not reflect that of the rest of the country. Leaving them with the question of
“What are people thinking and how different are we?”
When the news of the murder of George Floyd was released and the Black Lives Matter protests followed, they were faced with an array of emotions. Some being a sigh of relief that their white counterparts finally recognized the disproportion inequity while another feeling’s being of disappointment of their defensiveness towards the movement.
Though the silver lining could be that at the very least people’s intolerance has become clear and easier to avoid.
You’ve got questions, and we’ve got answers. Tune in on Thursday, April 1st at 6 PM ET for Uncreative Radio with Calvin O’Neal to hear what she’s been up to.
